Today, Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement in response to Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s announcement regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers: 
“Attorney General Lynch should not have been the person to make this decision after her meeting with President Bill Clinton last week, which was a lapse of judgment that created the appearance of a conflict of interest and makes any claim of impartiality insincere. Attorney General Lynch should have recused herself and appointed a special counsel who would be impartial. 
“It is clear that Secretary Clinton broke the law and endangered our national security through the use of her private email servers, and the American people deserve full transparency of how and why the FBI and Justice Department came to their conclusion. No person should be above the law.
“If one wonders why the American people have lost faith in their government, this charade explains why. Over the coming days and weeks, Congress will be exercising its oversight authority to help get the American people the information and answers they deserve.”
